Greetings Saxons,

This week’s homecoming spirit days have certainly set the tone for this evening’s football game. We wish our varsity football team luck as they take on Wakefield HS. We look forward to seeing our students at tomorrow’s homecoming dance. If your student has yet to purchase a ticket, great news! Tickets may be purchased through MySchoolBucks until midnight tonight. Tickets will not be sold at the door and students may only purchase one ticket each.

Fabulous news to share in the world of Langley sports. A huge shout out and congratulations to our golf team that won its sixth consecutive VHSL state championship on Tuesday. We are so proud of this phenomenal group of student athletes!

We celebrate our senior field hockey players. They were honored at last evening’s game.

Great news from band! Langley marching band was named Grand Champion of the Stafford Invitational. They earned the highest score out of every band there – 1st place from almost every judge. It’s the first time in Langley history that our band has ever earned Grand Champion status. Marching Saxons, we are proud of you!

Please congratulate the following seniors who were selected by audition to participate in the 2021 Honors Choir sponsored by the Virginia Music Educators Association!  These students will attend rehearsals in Norfolk on November 18 and 19, and perform in concert on Saturday at the state conference.

I look forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s homecoming football game. It will be a beautiful evening to come out to join the festivities.

If your student(s) plans to attend, please remind them no bags, outside food or drinks may be brought into the stadium.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our school and students. It makes all of the difference!

Hail Saxons!

GovDelivery 1 week 5 days ago

Greetings Saxons,

Wow! This week started in an eventful manner. I certainly thank each of you for your support as our school community navigated the challenges brought about by social media. Kudos to The Saxon Scope Editor in Chief Boden Gentile for his story posted on the publication’s website. His article, “Blown Out of Proportion?”, highlights his personal response  to the rumor spread on social media last weekend.  While the week started with a challenging situation, it quickly gave way to a sense of normalcy. As we know, normal is Saxon Country is our great students doing amazing things. So, let’s start this week’s celebration!

Congratulations to our Saxon Golf on winning both district and region championships. We wish them
well as they defend their VHSL state title on Tuesday.

Our field hockey team reigned supreme against McLean on Tuesday! We congratulate them on winning
the Rotary Cup!

Homecoming festivities will commence on Tuesday. Next week, the school will be filled with massive amounts of school spirit. We sincerely thank Safe Community Coalition for the banner proudly displayed at Door 14 reminding our students to make good choices as they celebrate.

With the beginning of a new month, we are seeing some relief in terms of bus transportation. This week, all of our buses arrived by 8:15 a.m. each day. There are still some delays in the afternoon but most buses are departing on time. The school division continues to hire drivers so it is my sincere hope that we will soon have all buses arriving and departing at the designated  times. Thank you to those students and families who have impacted for their patience and understanding; they are greatly appreciated.

Late buses began this week. Should additional assistance be needed in a course, students should make arrangements with their teacher to stay after for help. Late buses are provided on Mondays and Wednesdays, with the exception of next week. Please know, late buses do not depart until approximately 5:15 p.m. Students are supervised by staff members until their buses arrive. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, students waiting for sports practices or for parent pick up should report to the library. Supervision is provided there until 4:45 p.m.

We continue to have students who are inconsistent in complying with mask wearing expectations. Masks must be worn over the nose and mouth at all times when a student is inside of the school, unless they are actively eating or drinking. In order to ensure everyone’s safety, students who fail to comply with this expectation will face disciplinary consequences. Please remind your student of the importance of proper mask wearing. Also, please make sure your student has extra masks in his/her/their backpack. This will tremendously help should the mask break during the day or the student forgets to bring a mask to school.

Again, thank you for your partnership. Due to Covid, we continue to navigate an unchartered path. However, your unwavering support helps to make our school community second to none.

I wish each of you a wonderful weekend. Hail Saxons!

Fondly,

Did You Know...

As the shorter days and colder months are rolling in Seasonal Affect Disorder (SAD) symptoms begin. Robert Weiss, PhD., MSW, from Psychology Today writes “What happens when SAD occurs in conjunction with other forms of depression, especially the situational depression we’re currently seeing related to the COVID-19 pandemic, political strife, and other major societal issues?” This is uncharted territory and self-care is more important than ever. What are the options?

Did You Know...

Synthetic cannabinoids are sometimes misleadingly called synthetic marijuana (or fake weed), and they are often marketed as safe, legal alternatives to that drug. In fact, they are not safe and may affect the brain much more powerfully than marijuana; their actual effects can be unpredictable and, in some cases, more dangerous or even life-threatening. For more information about synthetic marijuana visit NIDA.

Greetings Saxons,

As we are in the waning days of September, the weather has finally turned and fall is upon us. As we are mid-way through first quarter, the school year is well underway. Our fall athletes continue to bring their “A” game to each competition. Regardless of whether we win or lose, I appreciate the fact our teams are always class acts. Try-outs for our fall theatre production, Murder on the Orient Express, have concluded and our thespians await word of who will be in the cast. I wish everyone who tried out best of luck!

Last Friday night, our home stands were filled with fans who came out to support our varsity football team. I thank our students for demonstrating positive behavior during the game. I look forward to seeing the stands once again filled to the brim for tonight’s matchup against Madison Warhawks.

Today’s Club Day was a great success! With over 50 clubs represented, I hope each of our students have found a way to become connected within our school community.

On September 30, students will be allowed to visit other teachers during the second half of Langley Links. In order to leave the assigned location, the student must submit an electronic request to the visiting teacher at least 24 hours in advance.

As shared last week, we have some students who are very relaxed with regard to their clothing choices. I kindly ask that you please remind your student(s) that appropriate dress is expected for the classroom environment. While the FCPS dress code has eased over the past years, students are still expected to dress in a manner which does not distract from the educational process. Your students’ teachers and administration greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you for all you are doing to impress upon your student(s) the need for proper mask wearing. We still have some students who require adult intervention in order to meet this expectation. Please remind your child that the safety of all is dependent upon each of us doing our part.  Also, I kindly ask that you send your student(s) to school with extra masks. During the day, masks may break or become sweaty.

Ongoing appreciation to those who have honored the request that Langley Oaks not be used for student drop-off/pick-up.

I look forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s game. If your student plans to attend, please remind him/her that no outside food, drinks or backpacks are allowed inside of the stadium.

I wish each of you a wonderful weekend.

Hail Saxons,

Did You Know...

Two researchers, including Cornell social psychologist Vanessa Bohns, conducted a series of studies to better understand how individuals felt before and after giving or receiving compliments. Bohn said, “This research offers an explanation for why: In the moment, we tend to forget how good a simple, even awkwardly delivered, compliment will make another person feel.” Here is the full article from Psychology Today

Greetings Saxons,

I’m excited to share this week’s happenings in Saxon Country. There’s a buzz about the building as our varsity football team prepares for its home opener against Meridian (formerly George Mason) High School this evening. We wish the team well in the match-up. Please plan to come out to support the team.

Congratulations to our National Merit Semifinalists! These students now have an opportunity to advance in the competition for Merit Scholarship awards, of which 7,500 will be presented.

I thank you and your students for your patience as we continue to adjust to the current situation created by Covid. School leaders are continuing to develop a plan which will enable students to meet with their teachers and attend club meetings during Langley Links while also ensuring contact tracing can occur, if necessary. Also, we are working to begin late buses so students may seek academic assistance after school. I hope to share final plans regarding both of these interventions with you in next week’s communication.

As students have settled back into the school routine, we have noticed some students have become very relaxed with regard to their clothing choices. I kindly ask that you please remind your student(s) that appropriate dress is expected for the classroom environment. While the FCPS dress code has  relaxed over the past years, students are still expected to dress in a manner which does not distract from the educational process. Your students’ teachers and administration greatly appreciate your support.

Thank you for all you are doing to impress upon your student(s) the need for proper mask wearing. We still have some students who require adult intervention in order to meet this expectation. Please remind your child that the safety of all is dependent upon each of us doing our part.  

I also appreciate those who have honored the request that Langley Oaks not be used for student drop-off/pick-up.

I look forward to seeing everyone at tonight’s game. If your student plans to attend, please remind him/her that no outside food, drinks or backpacks are allowed inside of the stadium.

I wish each of you a wonderful weekend.

Hail Saxons,

GovDelivery 1 month 1 week ago

Greetings Saxons,

I hope the long weekend provided each of our families an opportunity to reconnect and enjoy time together. As we have rounded out week three of school, students and teachers have established routines and gotten into the swing of things. Everyone now knows room locations and have memorized their schedules. 😊

Fairfax County Public Schools , like many other districts in the country, is currently experiencing a bus driver shortage. This has impacted some students here at Langley. I thank these students and their families for their patience as the school division has worked to hire more drivers. Good news! Additional drivers should be added to our bus routes in the next few weeks. This will definitely help alleviate the need for double-back runs for some drivers.

Our virtual Back to School Night videos went live on Wednesday. If you haven’t already done so, I invite you to view your students’ teachers’ videos; they are posted on Schoology. If you run into any issues with accessing the video for any course, please feel free to contact the teacher directly.

Please remember that only students that have purchased a school parking permit are allowed to park on school property during the school day. Cars parked on the lot without a valid permit are subject to ticketing.

As you are probably aware, the renovation of our school building was completed in 2018. The $73.3 million dollar renovation was a gift to our school community from Fairfax county tax payers. As such, there is an expectation that our students will serve as good stewards of this property. This week, we have had three student bathrooms vandalized. Behavior such as this negatively impacts all of our students. I kindly ask that you please speak with your student and impress upon them the need to be respectful of school property. As we strive to provide a positive learning environment for all, this can only happen if we work together and have respect for ourselves, one another and our school.

One final ask, please continue to remind your student to wear a mask over the mouth and nose when in the building. Everyone’s health must be a priority. Proper mask wearing is one the mitigation strategies for preventing the spread of Covid 19.

I do sincerely thank each of you for your support and partnership. Langley’s phenomenal reputation is a result of the community which we serve. May each of you have a great weekend.

Hail Saxons,

Greetings Saxons,

I hope this week has been a good one for everyone. Staff continue to work to build positive relationships with students and work to ensure success for all. As we are adjusting to the full return to in-person learning, parents and guardians I thank you for being active partners in our work of educating our students. As often stated, “It takes a village to raise a child.”  This proverb is exemplified by our school community.

As you can imagine, having a building and grounds which are shared by over two thousand people require us to work together in order to maintain optimal school operations. I ask for the help of parents/guardians as the administrative team works to meet the needs of everyone. I need your assistance with the following:

Safety

  • Please remind your student(s) that masks must be worn over the nose and mouth when inside of the school building and on the bus unless actively eating or drinking

Water

  • Because only water refill stations are available in the building (due to Covid), students should bring a water bottle daily
  • Please add money to your students’ My School Bucks account so bottled water may be purchased if your student forgets to bring a water bottle

Kiss and Ride

  • The Langley Oaks Development is not to be used for student drop off and/or pickup
  • Parking spaces in the school lot are not to be used for student drop-off/pickup

Good News to Share

  • Afternoon buses are now departing by 3:25 p.m. daily
  • Kiss and Ride is concluding by 3:30 p.m. daily

I greatly appreciate your partnership, support and understanding. They are greatly appreciated. I wish each of you and your families a restful and safe holiday weekend.

Hail Saxons!

Greetings Saxons,

Week one is in the books. It has been phenomenal to have all of our students back in the building. A huge shout out to our teachers and staff who have made each of our students feel welcome. I also thank parents/guardians for your patience and understanding as we have dealt with bus delays and traffic issues in the parking lot at the end of the school day. School administration continues to work with FCPS transportation regarding the issues with bus delays. I am also working to find resolution related to the repair work on Georgetown Pike.

While the school year has just gotten underway, we have reason to celebrate in Saxon Country. Congratulations to our fantastic crew team! They had a phenomenal showing in the VSRC State Championship Regatta held in June. We also congratulate our Girls’ Lacrosse team on winning the VHSL state championship! We are so proud of these student athletes!

As you know, our athletes not only compete hard on the court and on the field, but also in the classroom. The most recent example of this is the recognition recently earned by our volleyball team. They are the recipients of the USMC/AVCA Team Academic Award. Our volleyball program has earned this recognition consecutively since 2004. What a tremendous feat! Congratulations to the players, Coach Shifflett, and all of the coaching staff.

Again, parents/guardians, thank you for your understanding as we work to alleviate congestion at the conclusion of the school day. As previously shared, students should only be picked up at Kiss and Ride, located at Door 14. I respectfully ask that families not use Langley Oaks as alternate pick-up location. Langley seeks to maintain positive relationships with home owners in adjacent neighborhoods. Parents picking up  their students in neighborhoods hinders our ability to do so. Thank you for your cooperation.

I wish each of you a great weekend.

Hail Saxons,

Families, We Need Your Consent for Select Digital Resources

At Langley, our teachers will use a variety of digital resources to support student learning and promote communication and collaboration with students and families.

Included on this page is also a link to a form where the enrolling parent or guardian will need to indicate whether or not their student is allowed to use the list of digital resources this year. This page also provides more information about how FCPS carefully reviews digital resources for approval and why we must request your consent before using certain tools. We encourage you to complete the parental consent for digital resources form as soon as possible, as your child will not be able to use the digital resources until we have received your permission.

Message from the Principal

GovDelivery 2 months ago

Greetings Saxons,

The halls of Langley are abuzz as school staff prepare to welcome students back on Monday. We were thrilled to meet 9th grade and transfer students, along with their families, during yesterday’s orientation and open house. While disappointed we weren’t able to hold the open house for returning students, staff is excited to welcome them next week. To assist students with finding classrooms and other school locations, staff members will be in the halls and maps will be available when students arrive on Monday.

To help with planning, I am again sharing information related to the school day. Please note, school will start at 8:10 a.m. This is 10 minutes earlier than last school’s start.

School Meals

Every student is eligible for one no-cost breakfast and one no-cost lunch each school day. However, if your student would like to purchase additional meals or a la carte items, they will need to pay. The best way to purchase items this year is to use MySchoolBucks. To expedite purchase, I ask that you please set up your student’s MySchoolBucks account. If you have questions about MySchoolBucks, the school’s front office staff can help.

Setting up a MySchoolBucks account for your student is especially helpful during the current nationwide coin shortage. FCPS cash registers will have limited coins available at the start of the school year to provide change for cash purchases. Purchases made with MySchoolBucks also keeps lines moving quickly.

Your student may choose to bring their meals and snacks to school this year. Langley HS encourages this practice for students who have specific dietary requirements or are particularly picky. Bringing food from home ensures your student will have the meals and snacks they enjoy to fuel their day of learning.

Be ready on day one by setting up your child’s MySchoolBucks account and looking over the menus.

Covid Safety Protocols

To ensure the safety of students and staff, we begin the school year with a mask requirement in place for everyone indoors on school properties and buses. Any student who does not comply with the mask requirement, and is not exempt from the requirement as outlined in Regulation 2109.1, will not be allowed to participate in face-to-face learning. Students who fail to attend school due to a refusal to wear a mask, will receive an unexcused absence. Intentional removal of, or refusal, to wear a face covering will be treated as a violation of the FCPS dress code policy (Regulation 2613).

Please talk with your student before school begins about the importance of wearing a mask at school to protect everyone against the spread of the Delta variant of COVID-19, and the consequences of refusing to wear a mask. I appreciate your help in encouraging students to do their part to contribute to a safe school environment.

Covid Vaccination Update

FCPS will require all employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by the end of October. Staff who choose not to, or are unable to be vaccinated, will be required to submit proof of a negative test on a regular basis. FCPS is planning division wide vaccination clinics, beginning in the next few weeks, to help staff and students get vaccinated and receive booster shots when eligible. More details will be shared over the coming weeks.

Grading Updates

FCPS is committed to consistent grading practices where grades are an accurate reflection of student learning. Last school year, temporary changes were made to secondary grading and homework expectations in response to pandemic learning. This past spring, a stakeholder group reviewed the grading changes from last year and recommended that two changes be made permanent. The following changes have been approved by FCPS leadership: 

  • 50 is the lowest grade on a 100-point scale.
  • Allow late work on major assignments with a maximum penalty of 10 percent if submitted within two weeks after the due date.

Last school year, FCPS set temporary limits for homework to account for the conditions of virtual learning and student wellness during the pandemic. FCPS is resetting homework expectations to account for both student wellness and the existing FCPS regulation on homework.

To ensure that student homework falls within existing FCPS regulations:

  • High school teachers should plan for homework not to exceed 30 minutes per class block.
  • When long-term projects require additional time, teachers should adjust daily homework assignments accordingly.
  • Reading assignments are considered part of the homework load.

Now, let’s celebrate the joy that is the start of the school year…

We truly look forward to welcoming every student back to in person learning at Langley beginning Monday. If you need anything, please don’t hesitate to reach out. We are partners working to ensure the best high school experience for each of our students.

Wishing you wellness,

This includes students who held onto their FCPS laptops for summer classes.

Students who were issued a new laptop during Summer 2021 may hold onto their laptops and should plan to bring it on the first day of school.

First Year and New Student Orientations – SAVE THE DATE!

Welcome to Langley High School!  If you are a first-year student OR entering Langley as a new sophomore, junior or senior – we want to welcome you to an orientation and open house!  For the first 30 minutes, students will gather in the Main Gym while parents connect in the auditorium for important need-to-know information and then families will reunite and are welcome to navigate the hallways to find your classes, meet teachers and take care of 1st day essentials.  

Date:     Thursday, August 19, 2021

Time:    1-1:30pm meeting

             1:30-3pm Self-directed Open House

More information will be sent to first year and new families in the coming weeks! 

Returning LHS Students Open House – SAVE THE DATE!

As we look forward to returning to 5-days in person this fall, we realize that some of you have not been in the building for quite some time!  In an effort to help mitigate those 1st day jitters, we are providing an opportunity for all students to navigate the hallways and find your classes.  We look forward to seeing then!

Date:     Friday, August 20, 2021

Time:    9-11am Self-directed Open House

School Year 2021-2022 Bus Ridership Intent

Because of a serious shortage of school bus drivers, it is important that Fairfax County Public Schools’ (FCPS) Office of Transportation Services plans the most efficient possible routes for the coming school year. Therefore, please respond to this survey to assist in the planning. Submit a separate survey for each of your children enrolled in FCPS.

During the school year, changes to your intent can be made with your school's SIS operator if the need for transportation changes.

Please see your SIS ParentVue account if you are unsure of your student's ID number.

Senior Swag 

Senior Swag is available for purchase. A portion of each item goes to the Senior Class as a fundraiser. This merchandise is OPTIONAL.

The Senior Swag store is open until Saturday, August 14. Merchandise will be available for pick-up at the Senior Night on Wednesday, September 1.
